What Edward Snowden did was wrong and he should be aggressively prosecuted. However, I am pleased that he did what he did and that the subject of government spying is open to public discussion.
Authorities are disingenuous at best when they claim that terrorists have been alerted and gone silent as a result of Snowden’s disclosures. Osama bin Laden was aware of government eavesdropping and went digitally silent more than a decade ago. No serious terrorist group would think it was safe to use any sort of electronic communication.
